Your Word is a Lamp to my Feet

Winter Light @ NancyCI’m most familiar with this portion of the Psalms in the New International Version and King James Version of the Bible. But I also love how it’s translated in The Message:

By Your words I can see where I’m going;
they throw a beam of light on my dark path.
I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back
from living by Your righteous order.
Everything’s falling apart on me, God;
put me together again with Your Word.
Festoon me with Your finest sayings, God;
teach me Your holy rules.
My life is a s close as my own hands,
but I don’t forget what You have revealed.
The wicked do their best to throw me off track,
but I don’t swerve an inch from Your course.
I inherited Your book on living;
it’s mine forever–what a gift!
And how happy it makes me!
I concentrate on doing exactly what You say–
I always have and always will.
PSALM 119:105-112 (MSG)
